    Man Pummeled With Baseball Bat Over $1 Bill In Random Attack

    I wonder if they are now going to outlaw baseball bats.

    Man Pummeled With Baseball Bat Over $1 Bill In Random Attack

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Central Florida man was ambushed and beaten with an aluminum baseball bat for a $1 bill in a random attack at a busy gas station.

    Investigators said three men approached Nate Curtis at a Hess station gas station pump located on South Goldenrod Road in Orange County and wanted money.

    "They asked me for a dollar and I said, 'I don't have a dollar,'" Curtis said. "Then, I was putting my wallet away and one of them had a baseball bat and hit me across the head. Another guy came out of nowhere and poured beer in my eyes and that was it, I couldn't see because my eyes were burning."

    Curtis was then beaten by the men.

    "I have two fractures in my jaw, a fractured cheek bone and stitches in my chin," Curtis said.

    Detectives said Curtis was randomly targeted.

    "These guys can victimize you just as easily as they did this gentleman," Orange ounty sheriff's Detective Jason Sams said.

    "It makes me sick that people are out there and like that," Curtis said. "The should be behind bars. They shouldn't be allowed out among people who just want to mind their own business and be in peace."

    Curtis said the men were parked at the pump and were just looking for someone to beat up.

    Surveillance video captured one of the three men inside the store.

    I wonder how long they were "parked at the pump and were just looking for someone to beat up". Anytime more than one person exits a vehicle and stays near the pump I take note. If they were in the car and only one was looking for prey, then it's much harder to notice.

    uakaos, the mental image I got while reading your reply was hilarious.

    Who needs a gun? If you're on your knees and the BGs are close, go to town on their privates with a 3" fixed blade.

    I wonder if he waited there while they went and got the bat, or if they had it in hand when they first approached him....it wouldn't take much from a bat to give the injuries described!

    The victime had to be in "condition white". He turned his back on them or let them get behind him. Gun or no he should have keept two eyes on these men. If he saw the bat weilding thug aproaching he could have attempted to run or something. I get the impresion he took absolutly no mesures whatsoever to avoid this beating. Tough lesson for this guy on situational awareness.-Jay

    yes, we need to change things so the next headline reads "DIMWITS BRING BASEBALL BAT TO GUNFIGHT".....

    For some odd reason I thought this had to be in Orlando, before I even clicked the link.

    Leaving the running aside, what is the best course of action. Three guys, one with a bat, approach and ask for money.

    If this guy would have been armed, what should he have done?
